DC's Trinity will return to television in an all-new animated series on the Cartoon Network for the first time since Justice League Unlimited went off the air in 2006. While Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman have made some animated appearances elsewhere, Justice League Action will reunite the three biggest heroes at DC Comics to star in their first weekly adventures in seven years.
What's more, Kevin Conroy is coming back to the role that made him one of the biggest stars in DC and Warner Bros. film and television, Batman. Though he's frequently reprised the role over in the home video and video game realms, Conroy hasn't dabbled with the voice of Batman on a recurring series since JLU ended. The actors for Superman and Wonder Woman haven't been revealed as of yet, but I suppose we can all keep our fingers crossed for Tim Daly and Susan Eisenberg to make the dream team reunion a reality.
At least part of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman movie takes place during World War I, which would indicate that at least some of her solo adventure serves as a prequel. But before we get to that film, Gadot will make her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where — according to new details — she’ll find herself pulled out of retirement to fight once again. In addition to the latest intel on Diana Prince, we also have some new images from the epic superhero film, including one that appears to tease DC supervillain Darkseid.
It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours for DC fans, what with the full-length Suicide Squad trailer barreling into the public view during its big debut in the CW’s Dawn of the Justice League special last night. But while fans tuned into the hypeathon were left in a daze by the high-energy spot, they might have missed a preview just as hotly anticipated, teasing a DC property just as major.
Wonder Woman has long been the hurdle that DC’s film branch could never quite jump (or rather, had no interest in jumping, or claimed was unjumpable due to short legs, or some other such analogous bull-tonky), but they’ve resolved to change that with a supporting Wonder Woman role in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman and a full-on solo picture to follow.
Warner Bros. has been revealing some new promotional materials ahead of tonight’s big Dawn of the Justice League event on The CW, which will offer a new Suicide Squad trailer, our first look the united Justice League and maybe even a sneak peek or two at Wonder Woman (fingers crossed). Until then, WB has debuted the official logo for Diana’s upcoming film, and it looks very…metal. Like, literally metal, but also maybe sort of figuratively metal?
Over the past few years, Yamato has released a series of statues based on the femme fatales of the DC universe with the art of Luis Royo providing the inspiration. While the DC Comics Collection has primarily focused on Batman's lethal ladies, the recent addition of Wonder Woman into the mix hints that there might be bigger plans for the line. As nice as it's been to see Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy get more time in the spotlight, there's a reason Wonder Woman is considered one of the big three heroes at DC.
The original version of the Wonder Woman statue released in the fall of 2015, but Entertainment Earth has a variant edition of the resin piece coming this year. The basic version featured Wonder Woman stepping across some rubble with her lasso of truth in hand, but the new EE exclusive will have Diana ready for battle with sword and shield in hand.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Not that we exactly needed someone to confirm the World War I setting of Wonder Woman, given the leaked set photos and the persistent rumors that the film divides its time between WWI-era and modern-day, but just in case you wanted something more official, Chris Pine has confirmed the movie's time period and — as a bonus — is teasing a possible cameo from iconic Wonder Woman TV star Lynda Carter.
Though Wonder Woman is currently filming in Italy, the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe (DCCU?) film still had one important part to fill. The role of Wonder Woman’s mother, Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Some may have assumed that Robin Wright was playing that part, but it turns out she is not and Warner Bros. has just announced who is: Connie Nielsen.
The Gladiator actress has joined the cast to film a small, but important part of the Wonder Woman movie. Nielsen joins Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis and Ewen Bremner in the superhero film. Director Patty Jenkins had originally approached Nicole Kidman for the Hippolyta role, but the actress had to back out because of scheduling issues.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and as some of our earlier episodes have shown, Marvel isn’t afraid to compliment their Distinguished Competition by homaging, or straight up copying, some of DC’s most popular characters. Since her introduction in 1942, Princess Diana, better known as Wonder Woman, has become without question the most well-known and influential superheroine in the world. We already showed you some of the best analogues Marvel made for the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, and now it’s time to round out DC’s Trinity with the Amazing Amazon!
The Legend of Wonder Woman #1, by Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon, is the first chapter of an extended take on Wonder Woman’s origin. The book opens with a history of the Amazons and Queen Hippolyta, leading up to Princess Diana’s birth. It then begins a story about Diana as a child, in which she has a preternatural sense that there’s something mystically askew on Paradise Island, and it may be causing horrifying monsters to attack.
De Liz and Dillon’s take on the young Diana is a delight for Wonder Woman fans. With her voluminous black hair and big blue eyes, the girl who would be Wonder Woman is immediately recognizable among the other young Amazons. She’s a very serious child who strains against the expectations of her royal mother, less interested in learning how to rule Themyscira than how to defend it.
